Westminster College's Classical Greek Theatre Festival is the oldest Greek theatre festival in the United States. The Festival is an annual theatrical event created to introduce and sustain the appreciation of ancient Greek theatre throughout Utah communities and campuses. Recent festivals have featured performances of Herakles and Ion by Euripides, Women of Trachis by Sophocles and Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus.
Classical Greek Theatre Festival Presents HELEN by Euripides
Westminster College celebrates the Festival's 50th anniversary with Helen by Euripides.
While we’re all familiar with the story of the fall of Troy, Euripides offers us an ancient twist on the tale in which the famous Helen, whose beauty launched a thousand ships, never, in fact, left for Troy. The meddling Gods instead whisked her away to Egypt while a false Helen incurred the wrath of two nations, her family, and husband, leaving the true Helen to pick up the pieces of her tattered reputation and marriage.
